What is more American than a good ol’ apple pie? This recipe from Southern Living couldn’t be simpler, but it’s a classic for a reason. The all-butter pie crust is perfectly flaky and the filling has a nice balance of tart and sweet apples.
This gluten-free red, white and blueberry ice cream pie from Yummy Mummy Kitchen is a texture and flavor bomb! Crunchy, creamy, syrupy and toasty, this 4th of July dessert has you covered for almost every craving. Plus, you can easily make this vegan by using vegan-friendly granola and ice cream.
Sorry, these treats are not for kids! These red, white, and blue strawberries from Delish are first soaked in vodka, then dunked in marshmallow fluff and sprinkles for the most patriotic look ever. One bite, and you’ll understand why they’re called firecrackers!
Be prepared: This is not your grandma’s old-fashioned pie! From Austin’s Baked and Boozy, this refreshing pie packs a punch with Maker’s Mark infused whipped cream that’s piled on top of a sweet and tart blackberry and lemon filling.
Creamy and streaked with the vibrant color of peak-season blueberries, these lavender-scented ice pops are the perfect summertime treat. Mix up a batch with your family and then throw them in your ice chest for a quick grab-and-go dessert to keep you cool while waiting for the fireworks.
